Evolution

If you think you understand it, you don't know nearly enough about it

Okay this should be a review but there's a nice article in New Scientist this week on Evolution. Online they have some additional material including 'Evolution: 24 myths and misconceptions'. Take a look, at least one of the items has to intrigue you. As far as I can tell you can access it via this link without being a subscriber.

I was happy to see that we had mentioned a number of the Evolution myths in class at one time or another. Biologists don't always agree but the one thing you can normally get them all to agree on is that evolution is the foundation for all modern biology. Whatever subject area you end up in a thorough grounding in evolution will stand you in good stead
